"Order too far from last traded price"

Recommended Posts

Same thing here, had a play around and you can't even put a price in that's lower than the stock was trading a couple of hours ago! 

What's the justification in not letting us set our limits?

Signed up to ask about the same issue.

It worked out OK for me though, I tried to put a sell in at 142.069 when it was around 85 and got that same message. It closed at 147, so the order would have filled on the day if it were accepted... and then it went to 280 in after market. :D

I was reading that we should be phoning IG to ask our shares be made not available for lending, anyone here gone through that process?

Guest I did some digging.

Hi guys, did some digging. The explanation makes sense.


The reason for the limit is because IG pay a fee on every order on your behalf. Setting a limit (to stop people miss typing numbers) is to prevent additional costs.


Still, I want it off my account. Atleast for afew weeks ;)

    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.
